Dwayne Johnson Has Promised No Actual Guns in Any of His Films Following the ‘Rust’ Shootings

Seven Bucks Productions, the production firm headed by Dwayne Johnson, has committed not to utilize actual weapons in any of its future productions in the wake of the unfortunate murder of cameraman Halyna Hutchins in the film “Rust.”

Johnson, 49, announced the news at the premiere of his new Netflix film “Red Notice,” which also stars Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot.

“I can’t answer for anyone else, but I can tell you that any movie that Seven Bucks Productions has in the works — any movie, any television program, or anything we make or produce — we won’t utilize actual firearms at all,” he told Variety.

The production studio will move to rubber firearms, with effects added in post-production to make them look real, according to the former WWE superstar.

We must “learn from this” catastrophe, Johnson added, and figure out how to “go on in a better way.”

Many of Johnson’s blockbuster projects have been produced by Seven Bucks Productions, which he formed and controls with business partner Dany Garcia in 2012. These include the two “Jumanji” films, “Jungle Cruise,” and the upcoming DC picture “Black Adam.”

Johnson was “heartbroken” when he learned of Hutchins’ death, which occurred on the set of “Rust” on Oct. 21 when Alec Baldwin shot a pretend gun holding a live shell. Hutchins died as a result of the bullet, while Joel Souza, the film’s director, was wounded.

The incident on the set of “Rust” is currently being investigated by police.
